Also will note that I live in California and the sun can destroy stuff but this hose nozzle brand has NEVER had any issues for me. Great product.
My first nozzle still looks and works like new; I wanted this second one to have in the back yard so I don't have to hike back and forth from front to back yard to get my favorite nozzle.
I bought one of these and was so pleased with it, that I almost immediately bought another one for my front yard too. It is solidly built and feels like a quality tool when you use it. It operates smoothly and the variety of water streams it produces is excellent.
I really like these hose nozzles. I have several. The best thing about them, is that I can shut the water off when the water is coming out full force or when the water is just trickling out. Most nozzles are made so that when you want to shut the water off, you have to make the nozzle shoot a "jet stream" first. This one is not like that. If I have it adjusted to slowly soak some flowers, and then I want to turn it off, it just closes from the soaking position to off. On other nozzles, I would have to pick it up, point it in some other direction, like over my lawn, so that as I closed the nozzle, the jet stream would not hurt my plants.
Our hose split a few months ago and we had to get a new hose. Unfortunately due to the hard water and heat in Florida, we were unable to disconnect the nozzle from the old hose. The nozzle still worked perfectly. We bought our 2nd nozzle a few days ago and it's just as wonderful and well made as to the first. We highly recommend this nozzle.
This is the best watering nozzle I've ever used. It delivers water in a greater volume without high pressure like other nozzles. It has the perfect balance of volume and pressure. We have a large yard with plants spread all over. In many areas of the yard, due to rock walls and hardscape, I can't get close to the plant. Erosion from watering was always a problem because of the high water pressure required to reach the plants. Somehow this nozzle is gentle while delivering lots of water a long distance.
This thing is the simplest design, the most durable design, the easiest to use, and the most versatile all combined into one package. I can stand on my patio and water everything efficiently from the same position and I have multiple very large garden beds, some recently planted trees, flowers, and various types of plans that have different needs and I can reach them with no problem just by changing the nozzle position. The best part is that even on the soft spray setting, an enormous amount of water, at least compared with competitors, comes out of the nozzle and I'm done in about half the time or less than half the time and I was with many nozzles in the past. And yes cleaning off exterior walls and windows and washing our vehicles is so much simpler with this thing.
This is a very solidly built nozzle that works excellently. The flow can be varied from a very slow rate, suitable for watering potted plants, to a solid and sharply focused stream. The rubber housing works smoothly and is easy to hold and operate with wet hands.
